Top 10 Most Amazing Natural Wonders Of The World

1. Fly Geyser, Nevada, USA

01-08-01
This geyser isn’t 100% natural, but it was formed by accident. In 1964 drilling for sources of geothermal energy caused minerals to rise up into the strange-but-true form you can still admire today.

2. Iguazu Falls

The Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s throat) with its U-shape is undoubtedly the highlight of these majestic waterfalls. It is 82 metres high, 150 metres wide and 700 metres long, while the rest of the falls average 64 metres. Iguazu Falls has long been one of Argentina and Brazil’s most popular touristic destinations. Over 2000 species of plants, 400 of birds and 70 mammals have been registered in the area.

3. Plitvicer Seen, Croatia

The 16 Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are arranged in steps, linked by waterfalls. You can explore them on walkways like in the photo, or by boat.

4. Zangye Danxia, China

The sandstone landforms of Zangye Danxia come in idiosyncratic and colourful formations, their layers revealing thousands upon millions of years of history and prehistory.

5. Striped icebergs, Antarctica

Antarctica pretty much has freehold on ‘out-of-this-world’ natural wonders, as long as you like your wonders to come in white, or maybe blue, or in some cases, stripes.

6. The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan

01-08-06

In a story that recalls the creation of the Fly Geyser, the Door to Hell in Turkmenistan’s Karakum Desert has been burning brightly for over 40 years, ever since geologists tried to burn off natural gases discovered when drilling at the site.

7. Côte d’Albâtre, France

01-08-07

You’ve heard of the White Cliffs of Dover, but how about the ‘White Cliffs of Normandy’? The chalk-white Alabaster Coast stretches for 80 miles are rises in cliffs up to 100m high, forming odd structures like the arch at Étretat.

8. Bryce Canyon, USA

01-08-08

There is of course the much-more-famous Grand Canyon, but Bryce Canyon, sitting at over 2000 meters above sea level in Utah, is very much a wonder of the world with its pyramid-like rock formations. And it’s not actually a canyon…

9. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

01-08-09

Do not adjust your set. The largest salt lake in the world (covering 10,582 square kilometers, to be precise) resembles a mirror-smooth frozen lake, making possible perception-perplexing photos like this.

10. Pamukkale, Turkey

The surreal beauty of these mineral hot springs in Denizli Province in south-west Turkey draws so many tourists that access is now restricted in the hope that its natural wonder will be preserved for many more people to admire.
